BC Marine Trails strives to secure water access for public recreation for present and future generations and links coastal communities together by water. To show our love of the coast, BC Marine Trails is working in partnership with other organizations to promote World Ocean Week, June 1st – 8th, 2022. How can you contribute? Simply share a photo and a few words describing how you are taking action to preserve the natural beauty of our coastal environment.
We invite all BC Marine Trails members to choose an activity during World Ocean Week (WOW) that focuses on the theme “Caring for our Coasts”. We have a few ideas, you are welcome to add others:
With increasing use of outdoor recreation areas, it is more important than ever that we be proactive in protecting these areas to ensure we have continued access. Our BC Marine Trails Code of Conduct was specifically developed to promote respect and care of our sensitive marine environments. It is equally applicable to all watershed areas along our coasts. We invite you to adopt our Code of Conduct, pack a pair of gloves and a litter collection bag each time you head out and then share your “WOW” moments with BCMT to celebrate your contributions to preserving the beauty and the access to our coastal communities for now and for future generations.
